Stopped laying

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

Recently my 7 chickens (6 Easter Eggers and 1 Gold Comet), have slowed down their egg production. I'm only getting around 3 eggs a day, whereas before I would get 5-6. They hatched in May 2015. The Gold Comet has still been laying consistently though. I gave them a ton of greens, fresh water, and the correct amount of layer feed. pls help

Because of EE being a mixed breed, I have found them to be unreliable as far as consistent production, some lay well, others not so much. Mine in the past would lay and quit throughout the season.

I think we solved the problem. They would not go out in the sun during the day, so I locked them outside yesterday (with shade and water), and they laid 6 eggs. Thanks for your help! :)
